"I've forgotten why I've come here. Perhaps to seek a legend, perhaps because I hid from my past. But all I know, is that I am quite enjoying the warmth of the desert compared to the cold ice from the Peaks.."

Elina Yakslapper, well-known for causing one of the biggest dolyak's rampages when she was the mere age of seven. Hence, how she got the name "Yakslapper". Some see it as a joke and try to get at her by mentioning it to her, however she sees it as an example of how she differs from most norn.

Hello and welcome to this look! First of all, thanks for taking the time to look at it, it is appreciated;

Ever since PoF came out, I've enjoyed alot of the new skins and armor combinations I have though of myself, and seen around here.
I was working on a norn-druid myself, or atleast leveling her at this point (she is level 21 at the moment) and I just started to play the good ol' game of Fashion Wars 2. I didn't want to use alot of cultural armor, however I did know I wanted to use the Tier 3 cultural shoulder-piece. I then quickly set on the spearmarshal's chestpiece and the Prowler gloves swiftly followed. I picked the Predatory leggings simply because of the wolf's head that clips through the armor. I think it adds another color in the chestpiece that really makes it work.

I am happy with the result, thank for taking your time to read this!

To me your armour combination here is perfect: She really had the wandering nomad look down. I love the jerkins cloth tassles (more Mongolian here- no idea how to link that culture in Tyria!). I also like the wolf's head on the leggings. This seams very norn-cultural without using many of their pieces. My only niggle is that I could do with some more screens in different areas! I'd be interested to see how well the ascalonian bow works in the dark. Gold and I'm glad you are enjoying playing your ranger!

Hey there. Let me kick off with my usual norn warning...I am a sucker for Norns overall so ya I hope this won't take any worth outta my comment. But damn she is beautiful. Her face is so Norn'ish (if that's even a thing) and I love the armor combo, as @Mihrean said very cultural without necessarily using to many of their cultural sets. Your action shots are perfect and god knows how hard it is to take those perfectly! My only "issue" with this is the image cutting...I mean, I kinda get it, but I fell like some shots are not really benefitting from it, I feel like more longitudinal shots incorporate better the environment and therefore bring the character forward picturewise and eventually it would not even be needed to have shots somewhere else, cause we all known that one map in gw2 can be quite diverse if you take the time to look and see whats around you from different angles! Nevertheless this is a Gold! Good Job

Thank for you the comments. Screenshots for me have always been an iffy-thing to pull off as I tend to have a nack for lacking patience to do so. Also I really wanted to make some Crystal Desert pictures, however being low-level didn't get me far. Also I did in fact made a few, however I noticed that my game was on low instead of high. But I'll keep it in mind, thank you!
